Volume 017Edit

Original Japanese edition


After Rana foils Satellizer’s attempt to get intimate with Kazuya, the two girls agree to ally against Ouka as a love rival. Meanwhile, Ouka Tenjouin trains against a Type-S Dummy Nova, activating her Plasma Textures that allow her to withstand the Nova's whips unharmed. After the brief exercise, she recalls a conversation with Gengo Aoi about the Valkyries being potentially stronger than the Pandora with the Plasma Textures, but she wonders why Gengo did not give this technology to the Valkyries. The next day, Atsuko Seiga of Seiga Industries arrives with Faylan Generators, which power not only the Valkyrie’s Plasma Weapons but also the dummy Novas to be used in upcoming the training exercise between West Genetics and Platoon 13.

Since the Charles Bonaparte's attack on Attia Simmons, Platoon 13 has been receiving backlash from the envious student body. When Kazuya ponders on the recent developmens, she spots Lucy staring at the moon on top of a building. Lucy comes down to Kazuya's level and after she stares at him awkwardly, she tells Kazuya is her "sister" along with Kazuha, Chiffon, and three other unknown women: Cassandra, Windy May, and Teslad. Kazuya fails to understand Lucy or her explanation about the true purpose of the Nova, leading Lucy to transfer a multitude of memories about Maria Lancelot and the Nova into Kazuya by kissing him. Kazuya collapses from the experience and Ouka rushed to his aid while Lucy retreats into the night.

The training exercies begins with Roxanne Elipton, Ticy Phenyl, Arnett McMillan, and Miyabi Kannazuki has team leaders to fight against six dummy Novas. After Ouka destroys one of the Nova's core, the Nova strange sound and frequency that resonates with the Pandoras, causing illusions of being taunted and attacked as black smog spreads throughout the training grounds. Rana sees an illusion of her deceased sister, Satellizer is attacked by the illusion of Kazuha Aoi, who severs Satellizer's arm and leg in a might attack, and Ticy experiences the terrifying visage of Chiffon Fairchild. Roxanne and Charles are able to dispel their illusion by reducing the synchrony of their Stigmata. Gengo authorizes the Valkyries to use the Plasma Weapons on the dummy Novas they are unaffected by the "Voice of the Nova."
